    I've done glossaries of key terms for every section, and have made basic essay plans on common themes that they ask. Really worried about this paper as it's so pushed for time, an hour really isn't very long

    I think the best that you can do to prepare for this exam is to memorise all the definitions, consider advantages and disadvantages and prepare for having to write and think quickly. Highlight key parts of the case study so that you can add context within your answer. As long as you remember to provide a balance in your answer ("however", "on the other hand", etc.), include context (make your suggestions specific to the business) and answer the question at the end (have a conclusion to show you have answered the question as a whole), then it should be okay.

    how would you recommend approaching the case study. my main struggle is getting case study context into my question. An hour for this exam is so unfair aswell.

    It's best to highlight the business' objectives or any recent issues they've been having. Then when you answer the question you can add in "...and this will help them to meet their objective of_____" or "...and this could help resolve the issue of____". Also, small phrases help. For example, say if it was a clothing company, through in phrases like "the manufacturing of the garments" or "the distribution of the t-shirts and trousers", just to show you understand what the business is.

    Good luck, I'm sitting the exam tomorrow as well for the second time. My main issue with this paper is the timing - I can't write or think fast enough!

    the timing is the real issue, if we had half an hour more, our answers would be so much better and well thought out but you just end up rushing in this exam as you want to be able to actually finish it ontime! :/

    From an A2 perspective, retaking this paper, I'd like to let you know that relatively, this paper is the easiest you will ever come across. However, based on time allocated, and content required, it is also the most time-essential paper you will ever come across too. I can't help with predictions sadly, but take my word, and just write QUICKLY but very specifically.. I know many of us waffle for our own safety, but specifics really are key, despite the simple and common-sense content. Good Luck tomorrow

    I completely agree. It is the easiest out of the two year course but the timing is a joke. Thanks though
